Is an exec mba from a tier 1 school worth it if I already have a full time mba from a lower ranked school.

Many top schools won't let you get another one if you already have an MBA.

No AACSB accredited school will let you get another MBA if you have one already

That’s false, MIT will

Does anyone here learn best through repetitious exercises? I always used repetition and practice to solidify knowledge in college and while studying for the CPA exam, but I can’t find a way to make that work since I’ve started working full time. As a result, my technical knowledge is not up to par. I think it’s mainly because the learning format is listening to a very long presentation or lecture, but then there isn’t any follow up or practice, so I just end up forgetting what I learned. Cont.

My partner and I (both in our 20s) would like to get a house but it seems like we either get it now or in the next 5 years. I plan to get my MBA full time in 2022 (sponsored, hopefully), which means I would have no work history for two years. My partner will likely do a year long clerkship in 2021 that will sky rocket his income after, but since it is a pay cut it will not look good for preapproval. Right now, we have been employed for 2 years with a good combined income. Should we wait it out?
